The Facilities in the hotel
Speaking of "Sheraton Waikiki", infinity pool is famous. You can enter while watching the ocean. A floating ring like a yellow cushion floated in the pool, it was free to use, it was very comfortable. This is for adults only. Towels can also be borrowed, so I asked the staff at the pool side and borrowed it. Towels can also be taken to the beach and when you finish using it you can put it in a box on the side of the pools.
The infinity pool is located just a few feet below the sea level, so you can feel the pool and the ocean continue. I was soaked relaxedly while watching the spectacular views of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head, so I was able to spend time unique to the resort and I was healed very much.
There were a lot of deck chairs on the poolside. You can also order drinks.

The hotel surroundings environment
Waikiki Beach is spreading in front of the hotel. We could see the view of Waikiki Beach which is picturesque because there is a diamond head on the left side. It was a summer vacation period, so it was very crowded during the day.
It is the best to take an elegant walk while looking at the sea.
The waves were high on this day, occasionally the wave splash came to the boardwalk.

Staff & Customers
The staff of the hotel was very kind to everyone. We were slow in the room in the morning, the housekeeper was coming early ,so i told her please come back later, and she responded with a smile. I am relieved because they deal kindly.
I feel that the age ranges from 20s to 70s customer. I felt that there are many families with children and older people. It is an atmosphere that seems to be good for families rather than for young people. There were many Japanese. Many people in Europe, the US and China also came.
Access to the hotel from airport
It is easy to access from the airport. This time we took a hotel shuttle from / to the travel company and moved the hotel from the airport, it was around 20 to 30 minutes. The hotel is the center of Waikiki, there were plenty of shopping centers and restaurants, and it crowded late into the night. Although the security is also good, since the shops in the surroundings are closed at around 23’clock, most people will go back to hotel after that.
Access is outstanding! There are so many store and restaurant, so you can enjoy without inconvenience. There is also a trolley station soon, so it is very convenient for sightseeing in Hawaii.
Summary of Sheraton Waikiki
“Sheraton Waikiki” is located in the center of Waikiki and is highly recommended for shopping, restaurants and beaches around the hotel! There is no problem anyway so you can stay comfortably in Hawaii. Many staff in the hotel can speak Japanese. I think that people who are not good at English can spend peacefully. In addition, it seems that a doctor corresponding to Japanese also resides at the hotel, so we were able to stay at ease. The infinity pool was the best, I was able to spend luxurious time with the best location.
